Thank you, so far all I have seen that may be a solution is very risky and that's covering one of the pins that control the limit and closing it back up it's kind of willy-nilly so I don't want to go that route the other thing that I saw on YouTube was a different display that is compatible it's called, key display KD718. it's going to cost about a $125 or so with shipping. On the YouTube video the guy saying that you need to specify the limit that you want that shouldn't be hard because I don't want any limit but it's just getting the message to these people which I can't quite figure out how to do before actually buying the product. Anyway thank you brother Himiway Rider.

I hope you have resolved the issue by now. If you haven't, reprogramming the pedal assist levels as in the video above will give you the full power and speed (mine goes 35 mph on throttle only after making these changes). I personally would not modify the hardware by circumventing one of the pins on the control harness - but that is just me. Changing the settings in the computer may save you $125.

You can find out how to access programming mode at :30 in the video above. The code is 0510, he gives step by step instructions here. You can download the programming manual for the computer at: Himiway Computer Manual - however, it isn't the easiest manual to read or navigate (typical for translated manuals). Once you are into the programming settings, you navigate using the + and - keys.

To change the MAX SPEED, press the + and - keys together until the first menu appears (TC-n to reset the Trip Computer). Then press the - and i buttons together. It will prompt you for the passcode, enter 0510. Navigate to the LS screen and change it to a higher number. The number is showing kilometers per hour and defaults to 35 kph. I have mine set to the max of 55 (you may be able to program a larger number).
"When the current speed is faster than speed limit, the E-bike system will switch off automatically." <- page 8 in the manual. If you want a video to watch to assist; CitizenCycle Himiway Settings starts at the 8:02 mark.

PEDAL ASSIST SETTINGS: Access programming mode. Advance to the second menu ("2" in the upper right). I changed mine from the default 0-5 setting to 0-9 (finer control of the pedal assist). I used his settings. After he sets these, he changes the SSP setting to 4 to ease the amount of power delivered to the motor (makes for a bit gentler takeoff - YMMV).

Setting the POWER levels for each pedal assist setting will not only "tame" the motor (Pedal Assist 1 from the factory is a bit too much power in my opinion, especially until you get used to riding an electric bike - the torque is close to instant), you will smooth out the power levels for each pedal assist setting.

Hope this helps, enjoy the bike. I'm loving mine, about 750 miles since March 2021.
Cheers!

Thanks Powerbiker I really appreciate your time as far as you trying to help me out however what you said is true but it applies to the 2020 display model the model I have is the 2021 which has a limit set at 45 km by default I did everything you said and that's where it brought me to that 45 which I can only adjust lower and that's very disappointing since the one that came with the bike was fully adjustable. I ordered a key display from AliExpress which should be here in the beginning of October thanks again keep up the good work because we need experience people to guide us through this since very few companies well actually take the time. Bye for now
